1,000 volunteers to take part in Relay for Life

April 26, 2002

More than 1,000 area volunteers - including more than 50 local cancer survivors - are expected to take part in the American Cancer Society Relay for Life tonight at Burdick Field at Towson University.

The event, intended to support cancer research, education, advocacy and patient services, will open with a "Survivors' Lap" in which participating cancer survivors are introduced by name and then walk, run or use a wheelchair in the ceremonial first lap. Relay teams will continue circling the track throughout the event, expected to last through the night.

Opening ceremonies will begin at 8 p.m., followed by the Survivors' Lap. Information: 410-933-5142.
